It's no secret that Prince George will inherit the throne at some point in the future, he too knows that by now. His duties also include attending certain festivals and events. Despite this, his parents, Prince William and Duchess Catherine, are still reluctant to choose events for the nine-year-old for various reasons.
Selected performances only
Although little Prince George is increasingly accompanying his parents, Prince William and Duchess Catherine, to important events, it is striking that the parents choose them with care. He attended the 70th anniversary of his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth's throne and he also accompanied his parents to Wimbledon for the well-known tennis tournament. That way, the nine-year-old can practice and get used to the obligations of an heir to the throne from an early age.
Because he too knows what role he will one day play. However, Prince William and his wife Kate do not want to overwhelm the little one at this age and therefore a requirement of these royal visits is that their son always feels comfortable. According to royal expert Katie Nicoll, this is because William struggled with so much responsibility at a young age. "William struggled with knowledge as a young man and doesn't want his son to have the same burden from a young age," the expert told OK! magazine. Also, "George isn't as outgoing and extroverted as his siblings," says Nicoll."But he seems quite comfortable after completing the public engagements he's taking on," she added.
A Royal Birthday
Even if Prince George only recently turned nine "Image", he is aware of his royal duty. But that doesn't mean he was honored any less royally on his birthday, which took place on July 22. Staying true to tradition, his parents Prince William and Duchess Kate posted a self-shot portrait of the nine-year-old on their Instagram profile on the special day.
New birthday photo shows him in private
George can be seen in the photo in a blue polo shirt and he is laughing openly at the camera. Also in this picture he seems to feel comfortable. The followers of the royal couple immediately notice the striking resemblance to his father William: "He looks like his dad" or "George is becoming more and more like William," they write in the comments. It's no coincidence that George looks so rested and relaxed, as the family was reportedly on vacation in Norfolk at the time the picture was taken.
